(Wdevs) IBuySpy Roles are not enough

2005-03-18 #qc,#wdevs

ContentXML utilizes groups and roles to manage content within the system. There are four primary roles: contributor, approver, publisher, and administrator. Each of these roles has certain rights that enable users to complete content updates. Groups are set to organize what content is accessible by users within certain groups in the company. An example would be a business analyst who would be in the marketing group with access to marketing collateral and a contributor role, which requires updates to be approved. This business analyst would not have access to the financial group’s files unless the analyst was also a member of the finance group.

Primary takeaways:

  • Roles modeled after organizational duties
  • Groups modeled after organizational structure
  • Content updated and added according to group and role
